Recipe: Rise and Shine Breakfast Quinoa
I love quinoa and this is the perfect meal prep recipe for quinoa lovers! I make a big batch weekly and keep in the fridge to have on hand. You can use what you have or make it according to this recipe using almond milk for added vanilla flavor. I sometimes add in nuts, Greek yogurt, a drizzle of honey and even chia seeds for a little extra zip! This breakfast recipe leaves you satisfied as is it’s full of protein, is delicious, and gives you tons of energy to shine for the day!
